The golf offseason always comes too soon. Fortunately, there are so many distractions between it ending and beginning again, it's the fastest offseason in all of sports. By the time we hit Thanksgiving, my golf depression is in full swing, but all of a sudden it's Christmas time and the new season is just around the corner. This, dear readers, is a very good thing.

The governing bodies of golf proposed a ban on such practices Wednesday and while it's only step one of the process, all signs point to said ban passing.
The new rule states that during a stroke, a player cannot anchor the club, either “directly”...Read More

What I'm going to miss most about the golf season freezing over and the PGA Tour taking its annual hiatus is not just the feeling of getting out on the course or being lazy on the couch watching golf. There's more to it, as I'm sure is the case with anyone who has found this blog. I'm a sucker for lists, so let's get started with this one.
Reasons to miss golfing and watching golf because it's ju...Read More

What do you do on the most important day of your life? I guess that really depends on what day you consider that to be and the outside factors that might influence the ability to do said activity, i.e. weather, season, etc...
I'm 27-years-old and a little over a week ago, I experienced what I would consider, to date, the most important day of my life. I got married.
With all of the nerves, pressur...Read More

It was Sunday afternoon and I was just riding along in the back seat of a car wondering why we were being blessed with such beautiful weather this past weekend when my phone rang. It was my dad...
Dad: "Hey, listen, what's going on with this Ryder Cup?" he asked.
Me" "Last I saw, we were up 10-6 and looking pretty strong," I replied
Dad: "Alright, great. So I guess I don't really need to watch all a...Read More

International competition tends to bring out the best and worst in fans. No matter which side fan behavior leans toward, it's a unique aspect that gives any Country A vs. Country B competition a special atmosphere that can't be duplicated in domestic play. Bragging rights are on the line. Legendary status in the golf world is there for the taking. No prize money is awarded to the winner, but no do...Read More

The FedEx Cup used to be an extremely clunky playoff system that the media and fans treated with no reverance whatsoever. It didn't mean anything to win it other than the paycheck and the trophy. That's not how postseason sports are generally revered. It's not about the money - it's about the prestige, bragging rights and etching ones name into the archives as champion forever.
Winning the FedEx ...Read More

It's no secret that I was a little down on the BMW Championship this year. It had always been played at Cog Hill since I moved to Chicago four years ago and this year it moved to Carmel, IN at Crooked Stick GC. It's not that I have anything personal against Carmel or Crooked Stick - it was a fine course and visually pleasing - but there's something to be said about having a very meaningful, big ti...Read More

It's playoff time on the PGA Tour.
Don't get excited for an NCAA Tournament, single-elimination, style contest though. This playoffs is spread out over the next month and it's based on a points system average golf fans most likely don't understand.
But, that's not the point. All you need to know is whoever has the most points after the TOUR Championship in September is the winner. Follow the tourn...Read More

Is there ever a bad time go golfing? That, dear readers, is a question that would appear to have an obvious answer: of course there is never a bad time to go golfing, it is one of the greateast activities that we, as humans, can do.
If you want to play spoiler, go ahead and throw in during a thunderstorm and the dead of winter as bad times to golf. Other than weather, there are not many things tha...Read More
